    Charge it as often as you like at whatever level. Lithium ion batteries don't have memory. You are more likely to shorten the battery life by fully discharging it too often, but you'd really have to do it a lot to have a significant impact. Just plug it in whenever it is convenient.

    It is recommended that you occasionally discharge the batter until the device shuts down automatically. Then you should charge it to 100%. This isn't for battery life, but to keep the battery status software on the iPad in calibrated. Once on month is more than enough, or whenever battery life and the charge indicator seem to be out of sync.

    Once the iPAD gets to 80% , it will start charging in a much slower pace.
    Despite what every one says, you can charge it with a USB connection to any PC, with a program named "ASUS Ai Charger"

    I keep hearing about fast charging to 80% then trickle charge to full, I know what it means, but my iphone 3gs and ipad has never taken more then 2 hours total even from dead or almost dead to charge to 100%, so is there something wrong? or is that just some take longer then others to charge?
